Discover The Umeda Sky Building, also known as the "New Umeda City" and enjoy this spectacular high-rise building in the Kita district of Osaka, near Osaka and Umeda Stations. The 173-meter tall building consists of 2 towers that are connected with each other by the "Floating Garden Observatory" on the 39th floor. The observatory offers great views of the city through its windows and from its open-air deck. In the basement, you find a restaurant floor that replicates a town of the early Showa Period, while offices occupy most other floors.To get up to the observation deck, visitors access the East Tower for a swift elevator ride up to the 35th floor. From here the ‘floating escalator’ takes you across the open air from the East to West Tower, arriving just below the observation deck.
